After breakfast we return by car back inland to the Dixam plateau. The massive gorge crosses the Dixam plateau with walls up to 700 meters high in some places and creates a dominant view of the surroundings.
From the plateau we will descend by car into the Derhur Canyon, lined with date palms and you can swim in several clear lakes. The color contrast of the surroundings is reminiscent of scenes from Jurassic Park.
After lunch we will take a short drive to the isolated plateau of forest Fermhin, which is enclosed by deep canyons. Nowhere else in the world can you find Dragon´s blood trees (Dracaena Cinnabari) in such concentration as here. The characteristic appearance of this monocot plant and the age of most of them will captivate you
